Theme: Purple Potato Eater
This week's Peruvian purple potatoes look like gems on your plate. The coolest thing about these taters? They're high altitude potatoes. Skymeadow Farm is one of only a few farms that grow them in NY State. Peruvians need to grow at 1400 feet, Skymeadow is at 1500 feet on the edge of the Catskills.

Purple Peruvian Potatoes reported this summer that a new study shows that people who ate plain purple potatoes (cooked in the microwave) twice a day for a month lowered their blood pressure by 3%-4% without gaining weight. Researchers say the blood pressure-lowering effects are likely due to the high concentration of antioxidants found naturally in potatoes. Antioxidants protect your body from molecules called “free radicals” that can damage healthy cells. However, frying process destroys the healthy substances in potatoes. Skymeadow Farm (CO)

Scarlet Turnips & Blue Potatoes
Smashed Turnips with Horseradish
Simple Simmered Purple Top Turnips
Turnip Griddle Cakes
2 packed cups peeled, shredded turnips (about 1 pound)
2 tablespoons + 1/4 cup melted butter, divided use
1 cup half-and-half (whole milk may be substituted)
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
Sour cream (optional)
1) Place turnips in a medium bowl. Toss with 2 tablespoons butter.
2) In another large bowl, beat half-and-half with egg and salt. Stir in flour and mix just to combine. Add turnips and fold until evenly coated.
3) Heat a large, heavy frying pan or griddle. Coat bottom with enough of reserved butter to prevent sticking.
4) For each griddle cake, spread a heaping spoonful of batter on grill to form a 3-inch cake. Fry, turning once, until both sides are a deep brown, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter and keep warm in a low oven until all batter has been used. Serve immediately with sour cream if desired. Yield: 20 to 24 3-inch cakes.

Six Salad Dressings to Know by Heart
Green Kale Easy to cook and incredibly healthy. For a quick dish, cook kale for a minute in a pot of boiling water. Drain, squeeze out excess water, and sauté with olive oil and garlic for just a couple minutes. Remember to try kale chips if you haven't yet. Just strip the leaves off the stems, place in a plastic bag with a little oil and soy sauce mixture (by little we mean enough to lightly coat—worse thing you can do is add too much), shake the bag, and place in the oven at 280 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Rexcroft Farm (IPM) 
Storage: Up to a week in the fridge.
